acid may be recrystallised from water or dilute at< ohol,    Yield,
about 7 grams.

Properties.  Crystallises in plates with no definite inellin^-
pointj as the acid passes into the anhydride on heating. Soluble
in alcohol and in hot water, slightly soluble in cold water.
Reactions.  Sublime a little of the acid in a trM-tubr or in u
